Description

Why you should take this Cyber Awareness Training?
Technology can stop a lot of cyber attacks – but not all. You can have the latest cutting edge security systems in place, if your company staff is not cyber aware it’s only a matter of time until a breach will happen. Be proactive – not reactive

  • Every major breach these days typically starts with Social Engineering

  • Millions of people are targeted with phishing and spear phishing attacks on a daily basis

  • It only takes one wrong click or user action to have the whole organization compromised

  • Attackers use Email, Phone calls, Impersonation, Portal Media, QR Codes and other vectors

  • Don’t fall victim and learn how you can protect yourself

This Cyber Awareness training program educates users on threats and methods hackers use and will help organizations to mitigate risk.

What is Social Engineering?
Most of the data breaches you read about in the news today start off with an attack vector referred to as Social Engineering. Unsuspecting users are being targeted with phone calls, phishing, spear phishing, portable media and other types of attacks in order to gain access to corporate networks. The majority of IT users have no technical background and are unaware of the techniques and methods hackers use to target them.
